Jake “The Snake” Smith of Baltimore Boxing Promotions and Scott Wagner’s Ballroom Boxing announced that the area’s top amateur fighters will battle the Naval Academy’s best boxers Thursday, January 26 at Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD.
The card features more than ten bouts and all matches are sanctioned by USA Boxing. In addition to an excellent night of action, a special donation will be made to the children of Beethaevean Scotland, who tragically passed away in 2001 from injuries sustained during a fight.
“I’m excited for this event because it involves members of the community and is going to help out the family of a fighter who fought many times at Michael’s Eighth,” said Smith, who owns the Baltimore Boxing Club where many of the local fighters currently train. “The Navy’s coach Jim McNally is a personal friend of mine and somebody I have the world of respect for.”
In addition to the $25 advance purchase tickets, individual VIP seats are $50 and tables of ten are $500. All VIP ticket holders can enjoy catered food prior to the first bout of the evening. Doors open at 7 pm and the first bout is scheduled for 8:15.
Michael’s Eighth Avenue is located at 7220 Grayburn Drive Glen Burnie, MD 21061.
Tickets purchased in advance start at $25 and are available on Baltimoreboxing.com or by calling 410-375-9175.
